    That Grizzl-e is bugging me

    I don't know if that is just my unit or all Grizzl-e's are born that way. Mine often (but not always) produces errors when disconnecting from the car. It's either a charging fault (amber light) or accidental disconnect message in the FordPass. Naturally, I stop the charging before disconnecting...

    A bug leaves your car unlocked

    Today I was unloading my car in the garage and while doing it I left the keyfob at home, at least 30 ft away from the car so it definitely could not sense it. I finished unloading within probably 5 minutes. Then pushed the button and trunk closed, as expected. Then out of curiosity I pushed the...

    Tesla QUADRUPLED Supercharger Prices Overnight

    The price increases are probably coming to all chargers, not only Tesla. It's hard to imagine that inflation wouldn't affect electricity costs when all commodities getting more expensive.

    camera stopped working

    Suddenly both cameras stopped working today. A message appeared "Camera is unavailable". It was working 30 min before that, it started working again after turning the car off and on. Never had this issue before for the previous 6 months. I wonder if some update is responsible for this.

    This electric vehicle mines crypto in its free time

    It's hard to make a good car for driving, but you can have one to mine crypto. It seems to be a stupid idea, because the cost of operation directly depends on the cost of electricity, which in case of EVs is even higher than usual...

    car wash, what's your experience?

    I've been only hand washing my car thus far, so have no personal experience with the automatic car washes. Another thing all the car washes around offer a discount with purchase of gas, and I wouldn't know what to do with that, as I'm sure you can't sell gas on ebay. Have you taken your car to...

    Radio presets buggy

    I programmed all 6 rows of radio presets, but the car forgets that and shows only one row or sometimes three. Happens after car being off for a while. Interestingly, if I go back to setup and enable 6 rows again, all the presets are there.

    What is this thing that fell off?

    While wiping the front camera I accidentally pulled a tab next to the camera and a small plastic part fell off. I have no idea what it is for and how to put it back. Do you know what that is? I have a temptation just to glue it back and pretend it never happened, but first want to hear good...

    how often do you see charge fault?

    From time to time after disconnecting my Grizzl-e charger I get the amber light indicating charge fault. It doesn't happen when the car just finished charging, but it happens in other situations. For example, after charging overnight I wanted to disconnect charger in the morning and noticed it...

    San Jose to LA trip -- not so good

    A few observations from my weekend trip to LA. I had a choice of taking my wife's SUV, which we used to travel to LA before and naturally had no problems. Though I was concerned about charging we decided to try my MME anyway to get an idea what it's like to travel in EV. First, (I should have...

    Have you measured the actual efficiency?

    I have a Splitvolt device that among other things counting kWh I consumed charging car from the moment of installation. So dividing the total mileage on the car to the total energy consumed from the grid I'm getting about 2.5 miles per kWh. At the same time the "Trip1" display, which I haven't...

    Trunk light

    I can't find a button to turn on/off the trunk light. Is it in some menu on the screen? Should the trunk light up automatically when it's open? Mine doesn't.
